London: Pop star Lady Gaga says she is a huge fan of singer Lily Allen and considers her a sweet person.

Allen had earlier defended Gaga`s latest album `ARTPOP`, which has not been selling as good as her previous records. She had said that the `Poker Face` hitmaker deserved credit for choosing "art" over commercial success, reported a website.

"That`s really very sweet. I`ve always been a big fan of hers.
I appreciate her standing up for artists and for me in particular. That`s really, really admirable of her to do that. I think all artists should stand up for one another because when it becomes a competition, we`re not supporting production of creativity and art," Gaga said.

"She`s always had that old soul heart so it doesn`t surprise me. I thought that was very sweet - thank you Lily, you`re lovely!," she added.
